Joseph Revais or Crowing Joe

There was another curious mortal, a Frenchman, called Crowing Joe, whom many of the old settlers will remember, for the singular propensity he had of crowing, in imitation of chanticleer. This at last became such a nuisance, that he was arrested, and brought up before the police justice, but as no law was in existence which would prevent a man from playing rooster, if he wished to, he was of course, discharged, and when told that he was free, he immediately gave such an exhibition of his powers, so to fairly shake the windows, which was replied to by every cock within hearing. He was a worthless vagabond, and disappeared long ago.
